Wow. For $70, if I don't like them I will just sell them to somebody who does. I've always wanted a set of those and now the price is right!

2002~2005 Ranger mirror faces are easy to change. I popped mine off in a few seconds for these photos.

Just rock the mirror to the full "UP" and "IN" position to expose a gap under the bottom.

Then insert a flat blade screwdriver in the rectangular opening under the plastic mirror base from the bottom. GENTLY twist the screwdriver to pop the glass carrier off. Takes about 15 seconds once you know how:





Here's what the inside of the housing looks like with the mirror popped off. Notice the two slots at 3 o'clock and 6 o'clock where the anti-vibration springs ride:





Here is the back view of a heated Mountaineer mirror but the original Ranger mirrors and the signal mirrors look similar. You want to pry where shown, NOT at the other rectangular opening that you can see near the lower edge of the mirror:



When reassembling, be sure to line up the two anti-vibration springs in their slots. Then just use even pressure to snap the mirror back onto the adjustment platform in the housing.
